Argo Beats Cloud Atlas and other New Movies

The big budget Arthouse film Cloud Atlas couldn't take the number one and two spot this weekend as holdovers Argo and Hotel Transylvania took claim.  Though Cloud Atlas had the highest screen average in the top ten, it's 3 hour running time and mediocre Cinema Score (C+) deterred movie goers.  Though possibly it could have legs, this opening weekend does not bode well for the $102 million flick.

As for the other films that came out this weekend, they pretty much all failed... with Silent Hill: Revelation coming in 6th with $8 million, Fun Size in 10th with $4 million and Chasing Mavericks in 12th with $2.2 million.

In other news, the new James Bond flick, Skyfall, debuted overseas to the tune of $77.7 million... which is pretty damn good.
